Multi-cultural Therapy

For my multi-cultural therapy I offer this services:

Multicultural therapy embraces an understanding and reflection of diverse and intercultural experiences.

      • Identity from a cultural context
      • Patterns of communication
      • Social- and environmental impact

I specialize in multicultural counseling, where I address common issues experienced by members of the expat community. I can also address a wide range of mental health issues.

Living abroad can be full of wonderful experiences and adventures. At the same time it can also be difficult, lonely, isolating, overwhelming and downright depressing.

All cultures have their own norms, values, beliefs, and practice. Living in a new environment makes it difficult to hold on to your familiar behavior patterns. Individuals are faced with changes in their professional, social and private environment that might cause feelings of insecurity, self-doubt, loneliness, and alienation.

The focus of our work together would be helping you to adjust to your environment and get a firm grip on your new international experience.
